Tecmo Koei America has announced that the popular Dead Or Alive series developed by Team NINJA will deliver a major kick with the next installment. Returning for another knock-out round, Dead Or Alive 5 will marry its signature fighting style with MMA fighting techniques with a fun twist to players new and old. Currently in development, Dead Or Alive 5 is scheduled for release in 2012 on both PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
Visually striking scenes from around the world blended with a hard-hitting cast puts players in the roles of the cast of Dead Or Alive fighters once again in this intense action packed brawler. Unlike anything players have seen before, Dead Or Alive 5 brings the series to a new level. The famed Dead Or Alive hand-to-hand combat returns supported by completely new 3D stages that maintain their incredibly characteristic style but with a fresh look and feel, and so much more.
In Dead Or Alive 5 stages act not only as visual backdrops to accompany a fight but instead play to a fighter’s strengths. As a fight progresses, the backdrop will change and interact with players. Skilled fighters will be able to utilize these dynamic stages to execute hard hitting blows, pitting their opponents against new obstacles creating a unique experience that will leave you breathless. With each battle executing a new level of involvedness, the fighters themselves have become more complex in their design. In Dead Or Alive 5 players will be able to feel more involved in the action as they see their fighters sweat as they exert more energy. Further, the grittier realistic design of these beloved fighters adds a new layer of depth to the Dead Or Alive series. Players can also kick up the competition in online multiplayer modes where fighters must learn to utilize their strength and weaknesses to K.O. challengers.
Who’s ready for more DOA?
